Product Information

The Agapanthus is a spectacular perennial that will evoke an exotic feel in your garden. You will see this popular variety across southern Europe, but be amazed as it happily thrives in your UK garden too!

‘Poppin’ Purple’ is a new reblooming variety of African Lily. Whereas most Agapanthus flower for just a couple of months in summer, this superstar will bloom continuously from June right through to September. What’s more, the flowers are truly something special, with buds that are such a dark purple that they could be called black, opening into intense violet flowers.

The semi-evergreen leaves are long, slender and strap-like, growing in low, arching clumps that allow the flowers to stand out above them on long and straight stems - a characteristic that makes them ideal for cutting for the vase.

Agapanthus will happily grow in the ground, but there are many advantages to container growing, as when their roots are restricted they can often produce even more flowers. Pot growing also makes winter protection easier.

Like all Agapanthus, ‘Poppin’ Purple’ thrives in rich, well-drained soil in a sunny or partially shaded garden space, and they tolerate drought well. Although winter hardy, some protection will be needed during the coldest winters. Provide a thick mulch in autumn to protect the plants against the hardest frosts, or bring container grown plants under cover.

Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready for planting.

Top Tips

  • You will often get more flowers when the roots are restricted, so this is certainly a plant that does better in a pot, which also makes it easier to protect during the winter.

Care Information

  • Water your potted plant well.
  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • Add a soil conditioner such as well-rotted manure to the earth removed from the hole if necessary.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the spoil with you heel, avoiding the root ball.
  • Feed with a general-purpose fertiliser monthly from spring until flowering, then, from the end of September reduce watering and feeding to allow the foliage to harden.
  • In colder parts of the UK, cover the crown of the plant with a deep, dry mulch to protect the plants from hard frosts, or grow in a pot so they can be overwintered in an unheated greenhouse.
